Another Sunday heartbreaker loss to Tulsa, once again in the shootout. Lightning prospect Danick Gauthier notched the power-play equalizer in the 2nd period and racked up a game-high 6 shots, garnering Second Star honors despite not converting in the shootout. It was Gauthier's third star in as many games (two 2nd's and a 3rd). Gauthier is now T-8 in the ECHL in scoring, T-5 in goals, T-2 in power play goals, and T-4 in power-play assists. Ten of Gauthier's eighteen points have come on the power-play this season. Meanwhile, Wichita is 0-5 against the Oilers, thrice losing in a shootout, once losing in overtime, and once by a single goal in regulation. Glen Campbell or Isaac Hayes doesn't write the heartbreak any better than that, folks. The Thunder hits the road next weekend for a three-in-three with a double date against Brampton, and a Sunday affair with Elmira.
